Hooper's late goal extends Celtic's perfect start

Hooper's late goal extends Celtic's perfect start

Gary Hooper's 89th-minute goal extended Celtic's winning start to the Scottish Premier League season to eight matches on Sunday by clinching a 2-1 victory over Dundee United.
Hooper put Celtic ahead by sending Mark Wilson's cross into the net from close range in the 13th minute before David Goodwillie leveled with a deflected shot in the 38th.
There was controversy before the late winner when referee Dougie McDonald initially awarded Celtic a penalty after United keeper Dusan Pernis had clashed with Hooper. The referee changed his mind after consulting with assistant Steven Craven.
Glasgow rival Rangers also kept up its 100 percent start against Motherwell on Saturday ahead of next weekend's derby.
